I agree with you and love the elevation challenges at Turner, such as they are.
I played Turner a couple of weeks ago and was the first "elevated" course I have played.. was quite a challenge since I'm used to "mostly flat" courses. I'm looking forward to going back when I'm back in the area.

This week there seem to have been a ton of people rehost and share; it goes up and down in popularity every two months or so. It aired on Tosh.0 Ep519.

I've had one go on the edge of the street, but I've never thrown it that hard straight into the street, and I've never seen anybody do it.

Not my favorite hole at Turner, but what did you think of 18? I've only parred it one time! For me it takes an epic uphill drive and then two good fairway shots to even get close! Number 16 gives me some trouble as well but I'm getting a handle on it.

Advice on 7 given to me by a local: Don't try to throw over or through the treetops; throw low into the valley and try to skip up to the basket. I throw a Z Buzzz so your Roc should work well.

I've hit the basket with a thumber in the right side pin placement. Most of the time, the worst thing that can happen is being at the bottom of the "valley". Still an easy three. If you can get a thumber on the hill behind the basket, it's a fair shot at a two if not an easy one.

Agreed on this. Personally I use the thumber for this one, and have hit very close to the pin multiple times. I will say I've seen the lower, skip shot executed beautifully here, as well. I can't speak from experience yet, but #7 seems like a good opportunity for an ace

Thanks. When I finally develop my overhand, I'll try a thumber there. Sounds like a good excuse for me to do some field work.

One way to get a good vibe with the DFW disc golf scene is to join our club. Generic name, but different kind of club. We play traditional and unique game formats, have social events such as cookouts, etc.

I need to get out there, as I've not played it. I'm on the east side of the Metro-Mess, but as the daylight hours increase I will be going further afield.
